Constructed in 1970, Lions Park is nestled at the  base of Grandview Hill and is a versatile park with  a variety of amenities including the largest  pavilion in Provo with 41 tables. Excellent park for large corporate events and family reunions.

A plaque calling the pavilion ” a modernist wonder” reads:

In 1970, The Lions Club constructed this pavilion with its striking hyperbolic-shaped roof.  They financed its construction, in part, by holding pancake breakfasts and selling brooms.  Designed by the same concrete engineer responsible for the turtle-shaped Reams grocery store that once stood on 200 West, the pavilion was constructed by pouring concrete into forms on the ground and then elevating them using hydraulic jacks.
